Resulting Structures of Galactic Collisions - Resulting Structures of Galactic Collisions In the visible universe, there is one type of event that is often responsible for a good deal of the varied phenomena we observe across the cosmos. A type of event whose effects are both destructive and creative. This event is the interaction of two or more galaxies. The results of a galactic interaction are so varied that each event is unique. Therefore, only a select few examples will be described in the following pages. An examination of the term “galactic interaction” does not immediately convey much in the way of understanding as to exactly what happens during one of these events....   [tags: Essays Papers] 2320 words

The Ruthless Exploitation of Customers' Desires in The New Media Technologies Advertisement - Current state-of-the-art in the advertising of new media technologies like smart phones, tablets and game consoles, is to use the marketing technique called exaggeration (Kotler 168) to overstate the power of the new technology in order to stimulate not accomplishable expectations and create wrong longings in the target group. These promises go beyond the simple and reappearing claim about a new revolution (“Goodbye 1984”) and a change of the world (“Samsung Galaxy Tab”), they focus on user attitudes by trying to conciliate great benefits and unlimited opportunities for the user's life....   [tags: Advertising]

An Analysis of the Literary Works of Douglas Adams - Douglas Adams, an English writer, may in fact be one of the most spontaneously humorous writers of all time; he exhibits this in many unique ways, although many could overlook this and think of his works as elementary. In many ways, one could argue that the aspects of his writing are juvenile, but one must see past this front that he puts on and realize that there is far greater thought and meaning behind it if you delve. In the truly sidesplitting novels The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and The Restaurant at the End of the Universe (the latter is the sequel to the former), Adams incorporates the following: a sarcastic, agreeable style, ironic theme within this style, and a humorously d...   [tags: Literary Analysis]

On February 23, 2014, it was reported that two galaxies that had once orbited around the Andromeda Galaxy were merging together. The collision created a stream of stars in one of Andromeda’s dwarf galaxies, Andromeda II.

A typical black hole has a mass many times that of our own sun , but the size approaches point density. For all intents and purposes, black holes are singularities, a fact that many physicists find contradictory, since in general the universe abhors a singularity. They are formed when a large sun exhausts its fuel and collapses to a very small volume. Of course, conservation of angular momentum and mass hold true, so as the star shrinks, it rotates faster and faster, and its density becomes greater and greater....   [tags: physics science space] 1520 words
